Nate asks a powerful question at the end of this brief clip from the Tea Party Movie: "Will you stand with the Constitution and America? Or will you stand with tyranny?"
Although Nate directs his question specifically at African-Americans, the same question is being asked of every citizen today.
Our Founders wrote a Constitution that carefully restricted the new Federal government, limiting it to very specific powers and responsibilities. Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution is referred to as the "Enumerated Powers" clause because it lists exactly what Congress is permitted to do. The 10th Amendment, ratified December 15, 1791, further clarifies that the Federal government has no authority beyond the enumerated powers.
But more than any previous political leaders, President Obama and the Democrat-controlled Congress are flagrantly ignoring our Constitution. Like all pro-big-government politicians, their agenda is to circumvent, undermine and destroy the relevance of this important document. It stands in the way of their desire to see our lives controlled completely by an all-knowing, all-powerful Federal government. This has been going on for generations, and the American people are finally waking up. They are angry about the betrayal of these power-hungry tyrants.
Men like James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington and John Adams would very likely stand with Nate today, asking you which side you will choose: Are you with the Constitution and America? Or do you stand with tyranny?
